Important Aspects Of A Baseball Coach

Being a baseball coach can be very rewarding. It is a big responsibility, though. You are basically the ‘leader’ of your team, and how you act will directly affect how the assistant coaches and the players act. There are some tips you can follow to make yourself a better baseball coach. These tips are: 1. Give everyone on your baseball team a responsibility. Make each and every person on the team feel if they don’t do something, it won’t get done! Any accomplishments made by a member of the team are shared by the whole team.

Baseball-Coaching the Youth of Tomorrow

Coaching our youth is a delicate practice that needs to be taken with the kids self confidence at the heart of the teaching. These days, parents and coaches alike want to win so bad, they put undue stress on the kids that can have a negative effect. We over criticize when we are talking to them instead of building up their self confidence. I once heard a parent yelling at his kid from the stands, “If you don’t get a hit, you will not be eating dinner tonight!” Needless to say, I went up and spoke with the parent about this approach.

Kids will learn from example, whether we’re talking matrices in precalc during highschool, picking their nose as a toddler, or in our case, the basics of mental tennis.

How A Hacker Developed A Winning Golf Swing

I’m probably erring on the side of understatement when I say that Bob was a hacker. By his own admission he was: “one of those players who’ve never really had a proper golf swing.” The way he told it, his main concern was to give the ball a ‘good whack’. As a result of his lack of technique, Bob had spent much of the ten years that he’d been a golfer searching for his ball in woods and long grass. High scores and a high handicap seemed to be his inevitable fate. Bob and I first met when his employer asked me to coach him to develop his business and leadership skills. When we were working on ‘communication’ I used …
